The selected cadets participate in NCC activities of the host country helping them become aware of and appreciate each other’s socio economic and cultural realities helping strengthen political and social bonding between their respective nations. The YEP with Sri Lanka had 12 cadets selected from across India.

 

Sharing her experience Medhavi said, “It was such a proud moment to have represented my country at such a platform. It was a great confidence booster and was an excellent exercise in shaping our interpersonal and communication skills.”

 

Satnam Singh Sandhu, Chairman, CGC Landran and Rashpal Singh Dhaliwal, President, CGC Landran, commended Medhavi and said that the institution was proud of her. Calling her a role model for fellow CGCians, they wished her their very best, for the future.
